Cabarrus County Board of Elections Director Carol Soles encourages voters to visit the State Board of Elections online voter search tool at vt.ncsbe.gov/reglkup/ to view their updated information.
The site provides voters with a wide variety of details, including their:
- Voting locations
- Sample ballots
- Absentee ballot information
- Voter history
Voters can find updated ballot district changes under the “Your Jurisdictions” section.
Soles also encourages voters to view and print out their sample ballot before heading to the polls. “This will look nearly identical to your election ballot, allowing you to see your jurisdictions and candidates as well as practice marking the ballot.”
During the last presidential primary in 2020, 39,558 of the county’s 139,313 registered voters cast a ballot.
